Subject: Cute and entertaining
The premise of theives running a bank may have been less believeable in 1942 than it is today. Give the present state of banking, one easily finds the characters in this play to be more honorable than modern bankers.
This movie was well paced and charmingly funny. Better than many found in the public domain.
Subject: Very entertaining
Seven pick-pocket types get together to do a "job" and end up doing something else entirely.
Yay: Quick-moving, somewhat original story with likable characters.
Boo: Terrible hissing white noise over the sound.
